This is a question that will vary from pilot to pilot and the further we progress I’m sure it will change. I thought it would be cool to have a post where I share what I carry in my flight bag and other pilots can chip in with what they have in theirs.
So Pilots, what’s in your flight bag?
I have reluctantly sold my Venue 11 pro and replaced it with an Ipad mini 2.
I have purchased a smaller scale ruler & a Casio GT 85 calculator.
11/2/16 – 17hrs into a PPL
David Clark H10-13.4’s in a headset bag – Super comfortable headset and in my opinion one of the best passive headsets you can get.
Map of the local area – It’s always nice to know where you are going!
CRP-5, Scale ruler and square protractor – Knowing where you want to go is only half the battle, you need to work out how to get there!
Knee board – Have you tried to write on your knee while flying? I have, it doesn’t work.
Pens – Pens always going missing when you need them the most. A pack of twelve may last you 2 flights if you are lucky.
Dell Venue 11 pro 7140 – I love this hybrid tablet. The base also has an additional battery so I have full windows 10, 4gb ram, 128gb SSD and 64gb flash memory, Core M processor, wireless AC, touchscreen and an all day battery!
C152 checklist – To make sure that the plane is configured correctly and everything is working as it should.
Log book – To log these expensive hours down.
Copy of my medical – In case someone asked.
10,000 mah portable battery – When I am away from a plug, my phone still needs to be charged.
Samsung Galaxy Note 4 – Well this is more of in my pocket but it is always with me. It also has useful apps like Avia Weather.
Sunglasses – Being England I don’t need these that often 🙂
Xaomi Yi Camera, Olympus dictaphone and camera mount – Eventually I will start getting some video of these flights!
Wow, it is only after writing this down that I realise how much stuff is actually in my bag! Is this normal? What do you guys and girls carry?
